A whiff of that whimsical, Mary Poppins-esque spirit can be felt even from the entrance of this detached house in Singapore. Tasselled curtains frame the poolside area, where a pair of tropical-patterned armchairs holds court, topped with striped cushions that tease at other surprises to come. Step inside the home, and more wondrous sights follow: a delightful mélange of botanical patterns takes over the living room, while the colourful kitchen celebrates Italian fashion house Dolce & Gabbana’s vibrant universe.

There is certainly much to catch the eye in this abode, crafted by Singapore-based interdisciplinary firm Design Intervention. In fact, the studio had designed the original house for their former colleague, senior designer Wendy Smith, just a few years ago.
